Have You Checked your LinkedIn Account Settings Lately?

9 11 2010

When is the last time you checked your Account Settings in LinkedIn?  Are you getting the most out of the site?  Are you protecting your personal information from strangers?  What information is displayed on your Public Profile?  Are you receiving too few or too many emails through LinkedIn?

LinkedIn provides a whole host of options for:

  • Profile Settings
  • Email Notifications
  • Home Page Settings
  • Groups
  • Personal Information
  • Privacy Settings

and more…  I encourage you to get curious, and click on each setting to determine if you are getting the information you need, if you are displaying the information you want, if your privacy is protected, and overall, if you are getting the most from your LinkedIn experience.

I will not recommend individual settings as each person is unique in how they view LinkedIn, how they want to interact with others, and how they balance their privacy with their networking.  I do, however, recommend that you take the time to ensure that LinkedIn is working for you and with you in the way that best optimizes the site and its networking functionality.

To check and modify your LinkedIn settings, click on your name at the top right of any LinkedIn page, and then click on “Settings”.
